Christ The True and Better - Hebrews 3:1-6

Christ the builder and faithful delegate to the family of God reminds us of our heavenly calling. His Word shall not fail you, He promised;

Believe Him and all will be well; Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell!.”  - Helen H. Lemmel 1922

Hebrews 3:1-2 -  “Therefore, holy brothers,(brethren in Christ, those exalted to the same heavenly place) you who share in a heavenly

(the heavenly) calling, consider (fix one’s mind or eyes upon) Jesus, the apostle (delegate, messenger) and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house (family of God).


Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Psalm 127:1  “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” - Matthew 7:24

Hebrews 3:3-4 - “For Jesus has been counted worthy (axioo - deserving, fit, right) of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder (kata skoo wad zo - equip, prepare, make ready, erect, construct) of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.)”


Christ, the True Heir and rightful owner and deedholder of all that was promised.

 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. - Matthew 11:27

Hebrews 3:5-6 - “Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant,(therapy - attendant, discharging the duties committed to him - specifically spoken of Moses) to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast (keep secure or firm possession of) our confidence (Parresia - free and fearless confidence) and our boasting(that of which one glories) in our hope (joyful & confident expectation of eternal salvation, He who is its foundation).”
